Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies (ISO

member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO technical

committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been established has

the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in

liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical

Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 3.

Draft International Standards adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting.

Publication as an International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this International Standard may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard ISO 10549 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 171, Document imaging

applications, Subcommittee SC 2, Application issues.
Annex A of this International Standard is for information only.

Introduction

A6 size aperture cards can be used under the same handling and storage conditions as microfiche or microfilm

jackets. Having a single size for these various types of microforms facilitates their interfiling and their use with the

same readers or automatic retrieval systems.
Three categories of card are covered by this International Standard:

� the opaque card, made out of paper identical to that of tabulating-size aperture cards;

� the translucent card, made out of paper which enables the information on the card and the microimage to be

duplicated simultaneously;

� the transparent film card with "simulated" aperture, produced with a specific type of camera.

The possibility of duplicating tab-type aperture cards onto A6 size aperture cards is taken into consideration in the

dimensioning.

INTERNATIONAL STANDARD ISO 10549:2000(E)
Micrographics — A6 size aperture cards
1 Scope

This International Standard specifies the physical characteristics of A6 size aperture cards, used for the handling,

storage and exchange of information on microfilm. It also defines the characteristics of the materials used for

making these cards, as well as appropriate test methods.

This International Standard applies to opaque and translucent adhesive or suspension jacket aperture cards, of

even and odd generation, containing a chip of 35 mm microfilm recorded in accordance with ISO 3272-1,

ISO 3272-2 and ISO 6199.

In addition, certain characteristics of transparent film cards are given for information in annex A.
